When two fast foods cum (not a typo) together in one giant foodgasm, the results can be disastrously delicious. Such is the case with Montreal's Jukebox Burger's "Poutine Brgr," a sinful combination of two comfort food staples. And sorry about getting creepily sexual, but come on, you know you're like kinda turned on by this burger.
Part of Jukebox Burger's new menu that launched this past spring, the Poutine Brgr is a 1/2 pound of beef topped with fries, gravy, cheese curds, lettuce, and some mayo. Priced at $14.95, the Poutine Brgr screams out for our mouths and looks to be reason enough to head to JB right now.
This isn't the first poutine-burger combo to be tasted in Montreal. Let's not forget about the Burger Week 2012 winning creation by Burger Bar dubbed the "Hangover Burger" a a 6-oz. beef patty topped with caramelized onions, bacon, American cheese, truffle oil, fried egg and a mini poutine.
The OG poutine-burger is a little more decadent, and also looks a lot harder to eat. Unfortunately, 2012 is way in the rear view mirror, so Jukebox looks to be your only Montreal destination for a burger-poutine lovechild, which is cool with us.
While there are a million and one spots to enjoy a 5 à 7 in the city, not everywhere does happy hour quite like this Montreal restaurant in the Village.
Resto Keela serves $6 drinks from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., including house draft beer, house red or white wine, and speed rail mixed drinks, which is a choice of vodka, rye, rum, or gin — a pretty hard drink deal to beat.
As for food, you can go every week and try a different $6 dish at happy hour. "The $6 bites change from week to week but we always offer 3-5 options," owners Kristin Murphy and Johnny Hamilton told MTL Blog.
I went on September 10 and got to try green beans with a cashew romesco sauce and feta crumble, chorizo sausage, chicken Kaarage with kimchi cucumbers, and organic cherry tomato salad with blue cheese. And I kid you not when I say these dishes all take your taste buds on a culinary trip to heaven.
Keela's full menu is also filled with tons of unique dishes for you to try. The celery root carpaccio is hands down my favourite.
Every Friday night, you can hear the sweet voice of Bud Rice sing live at the restaurant.
